Racism in Foster Care – a Zoom dialogue


racial healing

The foster care system is failing Black and Brown children, and the death of Ma’Khia Bryant is just one of many examples.  Please join us for a presentation about Racism in Foster Care by Alan Dettlaff, Dean of the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work.  A facilitated dialogue will follow the presentation.

About the presenter:

foster care reform

Dr. Dettlaff’s work focuses on addressing and eliminating the impacts of structural and institutional racism on Black children and other children of color involved in the child welfare system. Prior to entering academia, Dr. Dettlaff worked in the child welfare system as a caseworker and an administrator, where he specialized in investigations of maltreatment. He is co-founder of the upEND Movement, a collaborative movement that seeks to end the involuntary separation of children from their parents through abolition of foster care and the child welfare system.
